Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Born in the United Kingdom in 1923, James Barber eventually moved to British Columbia to pursue a career food, eventually becoming a food critic at the 'Vancouver Sun'. Barber went on to write eleven cookbooks and star in 'The Urban Peasant', a popular television cooking show on CBC that ran for ten years. Barber retired to his farm in the Cowichan Valley of Vancouver island, continuing to experience the joys of cooking until his death in November 2007 at the age of 84. Now with informed and informative contributions by ten of his fellow food enthusiasts, chefs, and restauranteurs, "The Genius Of James Barber: His Best Recipes" has been published both as a tribute to his culinary accomplishments and to bring those contributions to the tables of a whole new generation of appreciative kitchen cooks. The recipes range from Hummus on the Cheap; Poorman's Hot and Sour Soup; Eight-Legged Chicken; and Shrimp Egg Foo Young; to Bachelor's Fried Rice; Spicy Potato Pancakes; Good Ol' Southern Corn Bread; and Chocolate Con Leche, making "The Genius Of James Barber" a welcome and highly prized addition to personal and community library cookbook collections.
